It’s February 14th.
Well, it’s February 14th but in my house Valentine’s Day won’t happen until tomorrow. Jim is in TX until late tonight and the kids voted to hold off opening valentines until Dad got home. How sweet are they, even knowing they have presents, they want to wait an extra day. One of the reasons I love ’em.
Anyway, since I don’t have a big sappy Valentine’s Day post today I thought I’d share a few sites I’ve stumbled on this week that are worth your time. They’ll either make you think or make you laugh. I hope you take the time to check them out. Consider it my valentine to you. : )
- Check out the Kid-Safe Chemical Act and sign the declaration. We know so much more about the chemical pollutants in our lives than we did in the 70s, when the Toxic Substances Control Act was passed. It badly needs reform. Enter the Kid-Safe Chemical Act. Please take the time to check out this site and add your name to those who want a safer environment to raise our kids in.
- Just for fun… Have your heard about Cooper the Cat Photographer? I don’t mean a guy who photographs cats. Cooper IS the cat AND the photographer. In fact, he just had his first gallery show in Seattle! I love the idea of Cooper holding a camera between his little orange paws, but in reality he occasionally wears a lightweight camera on his collar that snaps pictures at regular intervals. Silly fun.
- 5 Minutes for Going Green has a great post called Saving Green by Going Green. Have you ever noticed that on most of the products we clean with there are big warning labels like Poison or Caution? Yikes! Do we really want to expose ourselves or our kids to those? This post has a great list of ways to use natural ingredients to replace those chemicals. Check it out – I know it’ll give you some new ideas and it’ll probably save you some money too.
- Here are two fun sites for you and your kids. Spelling City is awesome if your child brings home a new list of spelling words every week. You just type in the list of words and it creates really great games for your child to play to help him learn his spelling. Very cool. Another place to check out is this Know Your States page. For anyone learning the geography of the United States, this is a fun way to see if you know where the states belong. Think of it like an online jigsaw puzzle. It’s also kind of fun to test yourself!
